Jeremy Giesbrecht, EA to MP Mark Strahl

 

ark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Hope is encouraging local residents to attend his Chilliwack Crime Prevention and Public Safety Open House, taking place next Thursday, July 7th.

 

"During discussions with local student Alayna Weiss, downtown business owners and other concerned residents, I was heartened to hear how many people in Chilliwack were looking for avenues to get involved in making our community a better place to live, work and raise their families" said Strahl. “However, many people didn’t know where to find out about the many opportunities that already exist. I am bringing together local community and government partners that offer volunteer opportunities to promote the work they do and encourage residents to get involved”.

 

The Open House will feature approximately a dozen community and government organizations that offer volunteer opportunities and ways to actively get involved in our community. There will be a wide variety of opportunities suitable for every age level, skill set and available time commitment. There will also be a number of short educational presentations aimed at protecting personal property and preventing residents from becoming victims of crime.

 

This event is taking place next Thursday, July 7th from 7-9pm at the Neighbourhood Learning Centre, located at 46361 Yale Road, on the Chilliwack Secondary School campus.
